Written by on February 9, 2022

Former US Open champion, Juan Martin del Potro, lost his first tennis match after two and a half years out with injury.

Del Potro was beaten 6-1 6-3 by fellow Argentine Federico Delbonis at the Argentina Open.

The 33-year-old Del Potro, who was in tears towards the end of the match and had to be consoled by Delbonis after the defeat, said he does not know if he will play again.

The former world number three had not played since fracturing his knee at Queen’s in 2019 and has undergone several operations to have the knee surgically rebuilt.
